Hi Dan, I bought my wetsuit through Xterra
And then I discovered their outlet, and I got so many great deals through their outlet,
I know own 4 wetsuits, of various thicknesses and sleeves, and I think two of them I paid $29 each… worth it!
Anyway, I have so many that I decided to cut the legs off of one of the really thin ones, so now I have a Shorty, which I like, because it gives me another option for when it’s still warm-ish but just chilly enough that I need something.
I rinse my wetsuits out in the shower,
I definitely do not give them a 20 minute wash, but I give them a good rinse.
I definitely get a lot of wear out of them.
It is super important, so follow the directions on the website very carefully in terms of fitting it properly to your body.
